Tribble's Sorry He's Not Sorry

Tribble semi-apologizes for taking selfies while Emily was talking to him and comments on the bathroom brawl.

The whole episode starts with Alex coming over to Vawn's to chat. This, to me, is very interesting. My feelings for Africa have subsided since she chose Vawn over me, but it is fun to sit back and watch the situation play out. What is Alex's angle? She is obviously trying to wiggle herself in the situation, but if Vawn is going to let her insert herself, then I don't blame her.

Later Vawn at least tells Africa that Alex came over. This goes back to his honesty philosophy. It is somewhat up to the girl in the situation to realize what’s going on, and I don’t know if Africa is seeing the writing on the wall. I am interested to see what happens in the next episode. Will Africa have the right to get mad at Vawn if he goes home with another girl, because he was honest? She talks about respecting his honesty, but we will see what happens when push comes to shove.

Even when Emily talked to her in the store as a friend, Africa seems to already be caught under his spell. I know that we have all been there; where you defend your crush/boyfriend/girlfriend, even when your friends and family are telling you that it doesn’t seem right. I don’t know, we will see how it plays out.

Let me just say that Emily Lipman has thrown these fashion shows before and she works her BUTT off with them. I have never seen all of the behind-the-scenes work like I have in this episode, but this just shows what all it entails.

But that I have modeled in fashion shows before, and with Emily, I like to pick out my clothes. Sorry I’m not sorry. She has been known to put me in some clothes that would make most gay men uncomfortable, so I like to have a hand in what I am wearing. I love giving Emily shit about stuff, because it is so easy. She really is one of my best friends so we can have fun together, and I know how to press her buttons. . .and I take full advantage. I wouldn’t call it being "high maintenance," as she said, but more me just trying to ruffle her feathers and get a rise out of her.

I'm glad that the Emilys can now see how hard it is to throw a party. In the last episode, with the Valentine’s Day party, y'all didn't get a chance to see all the stress that I went through throwing that party. It is just a very stressful environment because, what you will find out when you plan big events, is everyone operates on their own time. And you have to be able to put out the fires as they happen, because, trust me, they are gonna happen.

The fashion show was actually an awesome time. I am not going to lie, that event started a little late, therefore giving Tribble a chance to drink. When I drink, my ADD kicks in even more, making it even harder to listen to directions from Emily, and thus why I was taking selfies when she was talking to us. Not going to lie, I really just like to rowl her up and get her to do that finger-pointing thing. I wore this necklace because it was given to me, not because I was going to hit on "bitches" ha!

But it was a good looking event with a lot of energy and I think that it’s awesome that Emily was able to raise a lot of money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. One of the coolest thing about Emily is she takes the lead and has these events for CF and her brother. Shows how big her heart is.

Now onto the main event: The Bathroom Brawl. I don’t know what is going on with these two but I don’t know if they can find it in each other to sort it out. Both of them are big personalities that are stubborn in their own right. I truly feel like they just need to avoid each other, but I think that Alex likes to instigate stuff with Africa. I can’t believe that it got to the point where they were trying to ripping each other’s hair out. The banter between the two leading up to the blows was the most entertaining part. Alex just kept pressing her buttons and Africa could not take it anymore! Going to be interesting to see what plays out next week, because shit is getting REAL.

The Fighter is Not Who Tribble Is

Tribble on why he apologized to Vawn, what he won't apologize for, and why he shouldn't get thrown under the bus.

So this show starts off with the "fall out" from the episode before. Emily came over to my house and brought me doughnuts (thanks for the temptation). Vawn is talking about "being grown men and not letting it spill in the streets," but he was the one that came after me. I never put my hands on him until after he touched my face. I was happy to get out of there, trust me. I wasn't going to wait around when it was about me versus the world in that room.

And I don't remember ever actually touching him. He ripped the mic violently from me when I was trying to finish what I was saying. Did I go too far? Maybe. But I felt what I had to say needed to be said, and just because it didn't coincide with Vawn and his panel's views, doesn't mean that he can come rip the mic from me. That, combined with him touching my nose, was what really set me off. I know for a fact that I didn't put my hands on him until after he touched me. Twitter comments reflect this.

I’m glad that Emily is saying I almost got my ass beat. Thanks a lot Emily for believing in your boy! I stood my ground until about 10 of his boys came after me. Plus, I wasn’t dealing with a rational person at that point.

All that being said, I am over this whole situation. I have apologized to Vawn about HOW I approached the situation and getting heated in the moment, but I am not going to apologize for WHAT I said. That is my viewpoint and I am completely entitled to stand up for what I believe in. When I apologized to Vawn, it came from the heart. That dude -- the fighter, the aggressor -- that’s not me. I acted out of character and I am sorry about that.

This is the second show in a row that Africa has completely thrown me under the bus. I realize that you are being loyal to your man, but baby girl, you don’t know me. Saying I came incorrect and not to play, as well as saying I was completely in the wrong about what went down at the forum is a little ignorant. I realize that I am not your man, but at some point I feel like she needs to take a step back from the situation as a whole and look at the writing on the wall. I just think she is caught up right now, and I hope she doesn't mean some of the things she is saying. Same goes with Alex. Just because both of these girls are going after Vawn, doesn’t mean they have to say I am in the wrong. Did anyone see Vawn’s actions that night? No one wants to call him out on ANYTHING that he is doing and when I decide to stand up, I get crucified.

I am glad that my girl is mending her relationships in her life. With Emily 2, I love those two together, and being that they are both feisty as shit, things are gonna come up, but it’s no reason for them to stay mad at each other. With Justin, I am glad that there is some closure. It is sad because I have been through so much with those two, but at this point, I feel like some total time away from each other is best for both of them.

Africa’s show, however, was awesome. Her Lipstick Junkies have come a long way, and I can’t wait to see where they go from here!

Thanks for watching this season of The New Atlanta. Stay tuned for what happens from here, and as always, feel free to check me out on Instagram (@tribblereese) and Twitter (@tribblereese). I’m always on those and will be able to get back to you faster.
